Ajei Gopal, ANSYS president and CEO, commented, “The ANSYS strategy of Pervasive Simulation is resonating with our customers and partners. We continue to build new and expand existing relationships with customers around the world. During Q3, we closed 25 seven-figure deals, including a three-year deal of over $45 million, the largest in the Company’s history. Our focus on sales execution has resulted in another quarter of excellent financial performance. Our third quarter success was led by double-digit revenue growth in both North America and Asia-Pacific. We also saw improved performance in Europe, which rose 5% in constant currency. Overall, our results demonstrate the continued progress we are making toward achieving our goal of sustainable, double-digit top line growth by 2020.”

Maria Shields, ANSYS CFO, stated, “Our Q3 financial results are validation that our continued focus on execution and disciplined investing in our business is yielding measurable results. The strong business performance exceeded the high end of our expectations as evidenced by double-digit growth in revenue, non-GAAP EPS, and deferred revenue and backlog. Our operating margin and earnings results were both well above the high end of our guidance, driven primarily by the overperformance in revenue. Due to our increased confidence in the fourth quarter, as well as the overperformance in the third quarter, we are raising our Q4 and FY 2017 revenue guidance by $6 million and $20 million at the midpoint, respectively.”
